Face Adversity

If you're going through hell, keep going. A bend in the road is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn. Bad is never good until worse happens. Sometimes in tragedy we find our life's purpose - the eye sheds a tear to find its focus. Turn your wounds into wisdom. 
                        ~ Elder T D Miller


There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love. 
                        ~ Johnny Depp


If time leaped
ahead and we 
found ourselves
sitting in the lap
of where we
think we are heading,
where would we
                        ~ Paul


The butterfly said to the sun, "They can't stop talking about my transformation. I can only do it once in my lifetime. If only they knew, they can do it at any time and in countless ways."

Essential Authenticity
Revealing Your True Self 

Our true selves exist whether we acknowledge them or not, often buried under fears and learned behavior.
Identity is an elusive concept. We feel we must define ourselves using a relatively small selection of roles and conscious character traits, even if none accurately represents our notion of "self." The confusion surrounding our true natures is further compounded by the fact that society regularly asks us to suppress so much of our emotional, intellectual, and spiritual vibrancy. Yet we are, in truth, beings of light ~ pure energy inhabiting physical bodies, striving for enlightenment while living earthly lives. Our true selves exist whether we acknowledge them or not, often buried under fears and learned behavior. When we recognize our power, our luminosity, and our divinity, we cannot help but live authentic lives of appreciation, potential, fulfillment, and grace.  

At birth and throughout your childhood, your thoughts and feelings were more than likely expressions of your true self. Though you may have learned quickly that to speak and act in a certain fashion would win others' approval, you understood innately that you were no ordinary being. There are many ways you can recapture the authenticity you once articulated so freely. Meditation can liberate you from the bonds of those earthly customs that compel you to down play your uniqueness. Also, communing with nature can remind you of the special role you were meant to play in this lifetime. In order to realize your purpose, you must embrace your true self by letting your light shine forth, no matter the consequences.  

Rediscovering who you are apart from your roles and traits takes time and also courage. If, like many, you have denied your authenticity for a long while, you may find it difficult to separate your true identity from the identity you have created to cope with the world around you. Once you do find this authentic self, however, you will be overcome by a wonderful sense of wholeness as you reconcile your spiritual aspect and your physical aspect, as well as your inner- and outer-world personas. As you gradually adjust to this developing unity, your role as a being of light will reveal itself to you, and you will discover that you have a marvelous destiny to fulfill.

A Note from the Universe

Young souls use pain to learn how things are.

Mature souls use pain to learn how else things might be.

And old souls use pain to learn how else they might be. 

    The Universe


We are all one Energy Stream, but what makes the separations or distinguishes the differences is perspective. You are a unique and individual perspective.
                        ~ 'The Teachings of Abraham' by Esther and Jerry Hicks


There is more to success than just having a goal. Having a goal is relatively easy, concentrating on the process to attain it, is the hard part.  Once we have a goal, we need to set up the steps we need to take to get there and this is hard, painstaking work.  We need to shift our focus to the nitty gritty in order to make the big stuff happen, and it is easy to get thrown off track. Mentally prepare yourself for the time and effort it is going to take to make your goal happen.  Set up a time budget as well as a dollar budget when looking at implementing your goals and build in a little "fudge factor" so you don't go into a panic if things take longer or cost more than you budgeted.
                        ~ Edward W. Smith 


Speak Your Mind Without Fear

“Speak up! It will do your self-confidence wonders.”

If you’re in a meeting at work or at a family gathering don’t be afraid to share your thoughts, opinions, and ideas. They’re just as important as the thoughts, opinions and ideas of the others in the room.

When you don’t share your thoughts because you fear how they will be received and the reaction they may trigger, you slowly chip away at your self-confidence.

If the thought of speaking up makes your whole body tense, then start with smaller one-on-one conversations. This is perfect practice for the important occasions that will surely follow.

Today’s Meditation: I share my thoughts, opinions and ideas with others without fear.


Daily Teaching from the Power

You will not know how you will receive what you want until you receive it, but the force of love knows. Get out of your own way, and have faith. Imagine what you want, feel the happiness inside you, and the attractive force of love will find the perfect way for you to receive it. Our human minds are limited but the intelligence of love is unlimited. Its ways are beyond our comprehension. Don't limit your life by thinking money is the only way to get something you want. Don't make money your only target, but make your target what you want to be, do, or have. If you want a new home, imagine and feel the joy of living in it. If you want beautiful clothes, appliances, or a car; if you want to go to college, move to another country, receive training in music, acting, or a sport - imagine it! All these things can come to you in an unlimited number of ways.
